Vallejo, CA / December 18, 2012 – This Thursday, on December 20, 2012 from 5p.m. to 8
p.m., please come join Platinum recording artist / actor E-40 as he and his E-40 Foundation put
on their 1st Annual Toy Drive @ Kentwig Lanes located at 148 Lincoln Road East, Vallejo, CA 94591.
E-40, who was born and raised in Vallejo, has been an icon and inspiration to his city since the
late 1980’s when he first came on the scene in music. Since then, E-40 has gone on to sell
millions of albums, toured the world, appeared in television and film and remained a constant
force and brand in pop culture. No matter where he went, E-40 has always remembered to
carry a little bit of Vallejo with him.
Helping E-40 out with this event is Stockton native and UFC Lightweight contender Nate Diaz.
As one half of the Diaz Brothers, Nate is a force to be reckoned with in the world of Mixed –
martial arts but also finds time to do good for his own community and those around to his own.
As mutual admirers of each other’s work, this union of a great artist and great athlete for this
even greater cause is of even more significance.
This has been a busy month for E-40 and his philanthropic duties as he just came off the ultra-
successful toy drive with Kinder’s BBQ and SF Giants pitcher, Sergio Romo that collected
countless toys for the children of Contra Costa County.
Of the Sergio Romo Toy Drive E-40 said “It was a successful and memorable event so I had
to make sure that I came home and did one for my city”. E-40 also mentioned that Kentwig
Lanes was good enough to open their doors to him and his foundation to put on this event for the kids.
So please join E-40, Nate Diaz and their other special guests as they collect as many toys as
possible for the U.S Marines and Toys For Tots to distribute the following day to local children.
A new, unwrapped, still in the package toy will get you a moment to say hello to Nate Diaz and
E-40 or to get an autograph. More importantly, holiday spirit will be in abundance thanks to
those that contribute and for the efforts of the Ambassador of the Bay and one of the greatest
MMA fighters to grace the octagon!
